I went to the doctor today, he didn't check my cervix but said he WILL definately be checking it next thursday at my appointment. I asked him, if I were to go past due, how long would they let me go. He said I will have a baby by the end of the month regardless. He said lots of doctors will wait 2 weeks but he doesn't believe in that. So basically at my 40 week appointment, if I am still prego that is, we will be picking a date.
